How to clean fancy coils? Have you ever had a problem to do the coil maintenance? Or do you just throw the burnt coils away? That’s too wasteful!
Fancy coils (also understood as twisted coils or intertwined coils) are intertwined by multiple heating wires. The heating area of it is larger than the ordinary coils, thus no matter the flavor or vapor, they are superior to the ordinary coils.
With the advancement of e-cigarette industry, heating wires made of various material have emerged in the market. The fancy coils, intertwined by heating wires, known as finished fancy coils, can bring much convenience to vapers who like fancy coils.
After vaping for several days, there is always accumulative carbons adhered to the coils. It not only looks gross, but also influences the taste. When you vape on it, you will taste a burnt flavor unavoidably. On seeing this, vapers would wash the coils and change the cotton.
In fact, there are lots of points that we need to pay attention when we wash the fancy coils. Here I will give a simple elaboration on it.
The picture above shows the triple-wired Clapton fancy coils made of NI80 material that has been used for 4 days and are not cleaned. It’s easy to see that there are lots of accumulative carbons on the coil and the outside of the coils is blacked obviously.
When I vape with it, the burnt flavor is pungent. Of course, this picture is just for this test. In daily use, I suggest you guys to clean your coils and change the cotton every one or two days.
The accumulative carbons might be blasted away because of the high temperature and then adhere to the inner wall of the atomizer.
After removing the cotton, we install the tank onto the box mod, just like what we do when burning coils. Then we adjust the voltage to 3.0V.
Don’t adjust the wattage too high. If the heating temperature goes too high, the accumulative carbons will be blasted away and burn the vaper’s hand, even worse to melt the coils.
The strong burnt flavor you smell when you heat the coils is caused by the accumulative carbons on the coils.
When the coils are burnt like a coal, you can easily see the accumulative carbons adhered to the coils just like scabs.
When the coils are burnt to red, you can stop pressing the fire button and then put the coils into the warm water (40-60°). Attention, don’t wet the mod.
Please remember that don’t power it. Don’t power it! Don’t power it! Or the coils will be short-circuited and will melt in the water.
Then why should we use warm water?
In fact, the process that you put the burning coils into water to cool them is called “quenching”.
If the temperature difference between the water and the coils are too big, the coils will be embrittled. That is to say the coils will be easily broken.
Again, why should we use warm water? The reason is the temperature of the water will have a direct influence on the life span of the coils.
After repeating the process “quenching” several times, you will see there are grains of carbons in the water.
Then, you can use the vape brush to clean the coils. With the vape brush, you can clean away the accumulative carbons between the wires.
The brush part of such brush is normally made of stainless steel or brass.
When we wash and brush the coils, we should take into consideration the following points.
- We should brush the coils softly but not too hard.
The outer wire of the coil is always very thin. If we brush it too hard, the outer wire will be easily damaged.
- When we do the brush, we should brush it in one direction but not back and forth over and over again. I usually brush from the left to the right and then from top to the bottom. If you brush the coils back and forth over and over again, you will disorganize the wires intertwined with complicated process and enlarge the gap between the outer wires.
Later, we can disassemble the tank into parts and put them into the ultrasonic cleaner to clean them. In this way, the dirt in the tank will be all cleaned out.
The last step, after we air-dry the tank then we can install it onto the box mod and burn the coils to make adjustment. Then let the coils cool to the room temperature.
This step is not only to adjust the coils and see if the coils are heated evenly, it also has the advantage of “tempering”, which can improve the performance and life span of the coils.
Let’s make a comparison between the coils before cleaning and after cleaning.
In fact, when you use fancy coils, you might as well to choose the oil of low sweetness and good quality. In this way, the accumulative carbons can be reduced directly.
Fancy coils can bring vapers with high-qualified vaping experience, but because of the expensive materials and the complex intertwining work, the price of fancy coils are far more expensive than ordinary coils. When we use fancy coil, we should know how to do the daily cleaning and maintenance.
Just like the car maintenance, we should not only have a good taste on cars but also know how to maintain them. If we do the coil maintenance properly, we cannot only prolong the life span of coils, but also bring their good performance into full play, accordingly, bring us better vaping experience.
